Top tips for hiring a car in Kansas

  • For a trip to Kansas, it’s worth considering the factors that might come into play when you rent a car. If you’re traveling in the winter months, you will likely see bouts of snow, including ice storms, so you should think about renting an SUV or larger vehicle with a four-wheel drive. If you don’t have it already, most agencies offer the option to have GPS in the vehicle; this will help you get around the state. Kansas has many toll roads, so depending on your route, you might want to ask if a toll pass is available with the rental.
  • Kansas, like many US states, has strict laws regarding child car seats. Infants to age one must be in an infant seat, and the child must face the rear. Children 20 pounds or more may sit facing the front, but must have the appropriate seat strapping requirements. Older children eight and up can sit in a front-facing booster seat with shoulder and waist belts. Children should use a booster seat for as long as possible until they can safely use adult seatbelts. Most car-rental agencies offer child seats with the rental, so ask the company about this before you pay.
  • Most Kansas rental-car agencies permit travel across borders, but it’s a good idea to get all the rules and procedures before you travel to make sure your trip is well organized. There might be extra rental charges or higher insurance required to drive across borders. To travel into Mexico, for example, many agencies require additional insurance. Some do not allow certain vehicles like luxury cars or larger trucks to cross borders. Be sure to let the car-rental company know you intend on crossing a border, or you could violate the rental agreement.
  • Since Kansas is a large, rural state, if you plan on an extensive road trip across the state, it’s a good idea to know routes and toll roads. Many rental agencies offer toll cards or passes that make travel easier, and it’s often cheaper. Kansas has a network of highways and byways that intersect the state, and these are in excellent condition, with clear exit signs and road signs. The state’s 12 byways make driving a rental car a pleasure, and I-70 bisects the state east and west, taking you to all major highways north to south.
